Re: Punto Evo MAir 105 recall

T actually has a higher speed rating than H, so this shouldn't really be a problem. But a nice way to get some new tires!

Actually T stands for 190kph while H for 210kph.

Re: Punto Evo MAir 105 recall

This would only effect a very minimal amount of UK buyers as the only combination of car you can have this problem with is an EVO Dynamic with optional MultiAir engine and Optional 15" Alloy Wheels.

All other buyers are safe as they come with 16 or 17" alloys.

Thank ****
